The Upgraded Chevron

>> Monday, February 8, 2010

It's no secret that the chevron has made a huge splash in the design world over the past couple of years, in a mostly modern way.
{Lonny}
But the chevron, or zigzag, or whatever you want to call it, has been around forever. One of my favorite uses of this geometric pattern is with herringbone wood flooring.
  I also love the same technique with rectangular floor or wall tile.
I could not find a photo, but my favorite is the classic subway tile installed with a herringbone pattern. I love using conventional materials in unconventional ways.

That is one spectacular stove! I love the white chevron tile there. Those herringbone floors remind me of grand Parisian apartments. Lovely.

Oooh I really like the chevrons on the floor expecally in that dark wood floor and the bathroom. Very nice!

I really like the bathroom image - the floor is very unexpected, but it adds so much texture to the room.
